Just noticed that two payments have been taken for March -1 March and 29 March.
Thereby flatly contradicting the bullshit I was told previously about this, that they cannot take more than one payment per month. (Of course, it was obvious that was rubbish on a four-weekly schedule anyway, which is less than one month in all but one case.)

I don't know whether it makes a difference, but I didn't have a payment taken in Feb - or rather I 'back-ordered' in Feb to try to get ahead (which didn't work).

I'm not sure about everyone else but the account shows 'Direct Debit Payment - Thank you' for the 1st March but the payment actually came out my account on 15th March. Similarly my account shows payment taken on 29th March but the payment is likely to actually leave my account on something like the 12th April. It's pretty consistent I think.

I finished reading Nemesis.  I had had the three phone books but sold them a wee while back but it had been a while since reading them.  I sold them since I knew that the collection would cover the same material.  I really must admit that the last few stories were stretching things a bit and it looked as if they wanted a sequel where Purity would end up as Torquemada-Lite, being forced to make compromises.

Sorry though, the photo story was a product of its time but really was cringeworthy.

Exactly the same here. March 29th payment left my account today.

For what it's worth (and I realise most of you complaining about delivery times are subscribers) - my copies of the four Nem books arrived yesterday - I ordered them on the day Issue 42 / Nem Vol IV came out: 27/03/2019.

To avoid scrolling through 200 pages of this thread to find the helpful timetable someone posted months ago ... can anyone help a poor cherrypicker by telling me when the next Dante book is due?

Thank you! I keep checking as I'm nervous now about availability. All issues still seem to pop up on eBay but they seem to sell out at Hatchette so there's no back up. I think I'll order it via previews from my comic shop as I'd hate it if I messed up getting the set in Hardcover.

Yeah, it does feel like a bit of a gap - until you find out that Vol 6 is not out until January 2020...!
